Abbas Amidu has returned to the local Premier League after signing a one year contract with Caps United. The former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder is now back in the Zimbabwe Premier League after four years playing outside the country.
This week he resurfaced at Dynamos and has been training with the Glamour Boys before he was quickly signed by CAPS United yesterday. Amidu becomes the sixth player to sign for the Green Machine. He joins former FC Platinum midfielder Allen Gahadzikwa, former ZPC Kariba defender Dennis Dauda, returning defender Ronald Pfumbidzai, Edmore “Zikeeper” Sibanda and Cabby Kamhapa.
The Zimbabwe international forward left the country in 2012 when he joined Chiefs before he was deemed surplus to requirements and released to Black Leopards. Last year, Amidu then joined United Arab Emirates Division One club Masafi on a two-year contract.
Meanwhile, the Green Machine are close to sealing a deal with former How Mine midfielder Devon Chafa. CAPS United former players Gilbert Mapemba and Tafadzwa Rusike are also training with the club and being assessed by Coach Lloyd Chitembwe.
Yesterday, Amidu, accompanied by his father Amidu Hussein, a former player, signed the deal at the new CAPS United offices in Harare.
The ceremony was attended by Caps United Board member Willard Manyengavana and the player’s manager George Deda.
